Biography

Austrian Edwin Grienauer was the son of cellist Karl Grienauer and opera singer Helene Schott. He was known primarily for his design of official Austrian and Liechtenstein coins. He was also an outstanding rower, winning the 1927 Austrian Championships in double sculls. He created large sculptures, busts, medals and coins, was awarded the title of a professor in 1935 and taught from 1945 at the Academy of Fine Arts in Wien.

In 1928 Grienauer submitted three medals to the art competitions in the category Medals and Reliefs, one of them winning the gold medal. Two of the medals were created for a concrete reason. One medal was created for the award ceremony in rowing in Wien on 27 June 1927, in which an angel presents three athletes an olive branch. Another medal 60th anniversary was also dedicated to rowing. In the background, a coxed eight can be seen, and in the foreground an athlete (the winner) is waving a flag. The third medal showed a naked athlete. It is not known which of the medals achieved the gold medal. In 1932 he took part with eight works and in 1948 he earned another Olympic bronze medal for his Prize Rowing Trophy.
